  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Zoster Vaccine Live and Pneumococcal Vaccine, polyvalent are as well tolerated and immunogenic when the vaccines are given together (in different body sites), as when they are given alone, in adults 60 years of age and older.

Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase III Double-Blind, Randomized, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Immunogenicity of ZOSTAVAX™ Administered Concomitantly Versus Nonconcomitantly With PNEUMOVAX™ 23 in Subjects 60 Years of Age and Older

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of Varicella-zoster Virus (VZV) Antibody Responses at 4 Weeks Postvaccination [ Time Frame: 4 weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    GMT of the VZV antibody responses at 4 weeks postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23 and those who receive ZOSTAVAX™ and PNEUMOVAX™ 23 nonconcomitantly.

    *gpELISA = glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay


  • Geometric Mean Fold Rise (GMFR) of the Varicella-zoster Virus (VZV) Antibody Responses From Day 1 to 4 Weeks Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: Four weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    GMFR of the VZV antibody response from prevaccination to Week 4 postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23.

    gpELISA = glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.


  • Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of the Pneumococcal Polysaccharide (PnPs) Serotype 3 Antibody Response at 4 Weeks Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: Four weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    GMT of the PnPs serotype 3 antibody response at 4 weeks postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23 and those who receive ZOSTAVAX™ and PNEUMOVAX™ 23 nonconcomitantly.

  • Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of the Pneumococcal Polysaccharide (PnPs) Serotype 14 Antibody Response at 4 Weeks Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: Four weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    GMT of the PnPs serotype 14 antibody response at 4 weeks postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23 and those who receive ZOSTAVAX™ and PNEUMOVAX™ 23 nonconcomitantly.

  • Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of the Pneumococcal Polysaccharide (PnPs) Serotype 19A Antibody Response at 4 Weeks Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: Four weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    GMT of the PnPs serotype 19A antibody response at 4 weeks postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23 and those who receive ZOSTAVAX™ and PNEUMOVAX™ 23 nonconcomitantly.

  • Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of the Pneumococcal Polysaccharide (PnPs) Serotype 22F Antibody Response at 4 Weeks Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: Four weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    GMT of the PnPs serotype 22F antibody response at 4 weeks postvaccination in subjects who receive ZOSTAVAX™ concomitantly with PNEUMOVAX™ 23 and those who receive ZOSTAVAX™ and PNEUMOVAX™ 23 nonconcomitantly.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability of Both Vaccines When Administered Concomitantly. [ Time Frame: Eight weeks postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All adverse events were analyzed including serious adverse events; injection-site adverse events; Vaccination Report Card prompted systemic adverse events, including varicella-like rashes or herpes zoster-like rashes; all other systemic adverse events.
